It is a sin, the bible say ur one tenth of your income should be paid, whether someone dash u money or ur salary but a lot of people do not believe in it, and wen u pay ur tithe, it brings an open door to your finances, health and every part of your body. So people pls learn how to pay ur tithe is very important, and pay it to ur church were u receive the word of God ok. that is my advice

 First :What is the tithe?

Tithes is the giving a tenth of one's income as an offering to God. Abraham was the first man ever recorded in the bible to give tithes to God. Read the full account in Genesis 14. also Leviticus 27: 30  states that
30 "'A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD. 31 If a man redeems any of his tithe, he must add a fifth of the value to it.

25 The LORD said to Moses, 26 "Speak to the Levites and say to them: 'When you receive from the Israelites the tithe I give you as your inheritance, you must present a tenth of that tithe as the LORD's offering. 27 Your offering will be reckoned to you as grain from the threshing floor or juice from the winepress. 28 In this way you also will present an offering to the LORD from all the tithes you receive from the Israelites. From these tithes you must give the LORD's portion to Aaron the priest. 29 You must present as the LORD's portion the best and holiest part of everything given to you.

Malachi 3: 3 - 12 gives God's mind with regards to paying tithes
"Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me.
"But you ask, 'How do we rob you?'
"In tithes and offerings. 9 You are under a curse-the whole nation of you-because you are robbing me. 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. 11 I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit," says the LORD Almighty. 12 "Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land," says the LORD Almighty.

SO MY GUY WITH ALL THIS I C NO REASON WHY TITH SHOULD NOT BE PAYED THAT MEANS IS A SIN WITH CURSE. BUT I PRAY IT WON'T BE OURS AMEN.

NOT PAYING YOUR TITHE IS A SIN BECAUSE YOU ARE ROBBING GOD.

IT IS A SIN NOT TO PAY TITHE IN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH BECAUSE GOD DIRECTED US TO PAY ONE OUT OF OUR SEVEN EARNINGS. AND IF WE DON'T WE ARE ROBING GOD.

Quote from: Mikayah on 10:34 AM,  6/04/2009
The first thing about anything is a knowlegde of what that thing is:

But I do more than thank. I ask—ask the Mighty One of our Master, Yahoshua Messiah, the Mighty One of esteem—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this honorable way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength! Ephesians 1: 16-18.
 And again:

"My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the torah/law of your Mighty One, I also will ignore your children." Hosea 4:6a.

What do the above passages tell us?

Firstly is there anywhere in the Scriptures that it is commanded to give tithes in the form of money if we are to follow Scriptures instructions?

"Your word is a lamp to my feet
       and a light for my path."
Tehillim/Psalm 119: 105.

Now to the nature of tithes:

RULE NUMBER 1.

22) Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year.  


RULE NUMBER 2.

23) Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of Yahweh your Mighty One at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to revere Yahweh your Mighty One always.


RULE NUMBER 3a.

24) But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by Yahweh your Mighty One and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where Yahweh will choose to put his Name is so far away),

25) then exchange your tithe for silver (money), and take the silver (money) with you and go to the place Yahweh your Mighty One will choose.

RULE NUMBER 3b
26) Use the silver (Money) to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink, or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of Yahweh your Mighty One and rejoice.

27) And do not neglect the Levites living in your towns, for they have no allotment or inheritance of their own.
 
RULE NUMBER 4 (This will be another topic but notice it follows the annual pattern x3).

28) At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year's produce and store it in your towns, 29 so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

Debarim/Deuteronomy 14: 22.



So Show Me.

So show me where it states money should be given as tithes or tithes should be collected every day, week, month.

My brothers and sisters first learn about the thing then you can talk reasonably about it as to help others come to the knowledge of the truth.

IT SEEMS TO ME YOU ARE LIVING IN ANOTHER SPACE AND TIME. When you offer ten percent of you EARNINGS(Be it money or other) !!! no matter what day, week, or month in this 21st century calendar; what you offered to God is 10% of you sweat and blood for looking after his vine yard which in turn will enable God take care of your vine yard
